    No, no, its a special roloc plastic wheel thats designed for aluminum. It only cleans the gasket residue kind of like an eraser. then you have to check the surface and have it milled if needed.

    So things have been very uneventful with cars lately. I have been trying to slowly plug away at the starlet while also moving painfully slow with building a new efi and turbo motor for the corolla. That might be my problem, simply not focusing on one project at a time.

    Work has been less than awesome too after leaving one dealer for another and now them wanting to poach me back. So many distractions and yet once I finally do get to do something, no matter how small and stupid, its just pure bliss. Big thanks to my shopmates for helping keep me motivated. Seeing there stuff always picks me up.

    Tube bender is in the shop, welder in action, and all I could think of to post is my daughter helping me mock up some turbo plumbing.

    Okay, so I have been mocking up intakes and could use some input so send me a pm with your opinion if you like.

    First intake is a 2tgeu one that is a Toyota part and is fitted with an adapter plate I made.



    Second one is Ryan's and features a custom plenum and much larger Ford throttle body.



    Ryan's (very smart) argument is that we should trade intakes due to me going for more power with boost whereas he is simply going for driveability with efi.

    One pic showing the intake and turbo exhaust manifold.

    sounds like you made your mind up already. my choice is 2tgeu simply because it's oem- but may not meet your performance requirements??

    Well I think the geu manifold would suit you fine, but it sounds like a trade might make both of you happy. I'm sure you'll get more top end power out of the fabbed manifold.

    Oem looks Oem, the custom one looks pretty good, howdoes it look inside?
    How are the transitions from plenum to runner on both Oem and custom?
    Tough choice, also were are the injectors on the custom rail?

    Nm, I just saw them under the runners.
    I would go for the custom mani, way more room to grow, the Oem one looks pretty restrictive.

    The injectors on the custom mani are on the bottom of the runners.

    Both look pretty good inside. The oem one surprised me with how it had funnels inside for airflow. I did not expect that at all. The oem one simply needs a larger throttle body.

    Either way I think they can both be made to perform very nicely.

    The decision was made. rretrofitted the 2tgeu set-up and built a megasquirt 3. First start is complete so now begins clean-up of wire and tuning.
